The Enablers

  And so, before the bodies are even cold – before the bodies are even removed from the scene – Tucker Carlson blames Pres. Obama for the shootings at the club in Orlando, Florida. He says it is because Obama has been soft on terrorism. Never mind that Osama bin Laden has been located and

You’re Looking The Wrong Way

Once again, a Bernie supporter accuses Hillary of being a corporate shill without any proof. I thought maybe I’d address that just a little bit. Here’s a big truth. Everybody running for office gets corporate donations, even Bernie. If you don’t believe me. Here is a list of his top 10 donors. If I’m not

Voter Registration

Hillary Clinton has called for automatic voter registration and I agree but I would go much further than that.

Most Republican voters don’t realize who Charles and David Koch are or what Citizens United was or Americans

What Have Republicans Done In the Last 50 Years

I hear it all the time: “What have Republicans done in the last 50 years?” or “What have Republicans done for us in the last 50 years?” Usually, the person being asked will answer that republicans have done nothing. They are wrong. In the last 50 years Republicans have given us a country where: Hate

Thank You President Obama

I saw a meme the other day that said that if you owed student loans you couldn’t draw on your pension. This is not necessarily true. After I retired I made the decision to go back to school and learn to write. I don’t mean just put words on paper, I wanted to learn formatting
